  • Genoa, North West Italy - more flooding

    A couple of weeks back I reported how devastating floods and mudslides had crippled the area of Cinque Terre in Italy a few days after I visited the towns. Well this morning the area to the north was reported to be suffering even worse problems. Genoa is the largest town in that part of the country and at the moment a large low lying sector is under water after raging flash floods swept through the streets causing incredible destruction. Again a number of people lost their lives.

    The video on the following news page shows just how devastating the situation was and the sheer power of the water. A terrible tragedy which makes you really feel for all those involked.

        Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

        The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
        I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

        As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...
